Marcia spent her childhood and most of her life in Utah, she moved to California for eight years and loved it, but Utah was home. The last couple years of her life she chose to live in Great Falls, Montana due to health reasons.

Marcia loved life, her country, and her loved ones. She was the life of the party and found as many excuses as she could to celebrate. Whether it was enjoying friends or family, making her own birthday special, and/or observing every holiday she enjoyed every minute.

Marcia loved the performing arts. As a little girl she was always dancing and took that love throughout her life. She performed in plays, parades, and recitals when she was young, and as she got older, she loved to get on the dance floor and dance the night away.

Marcia was always enjoying a good book and was very well read. She always had to know what was going on in the world and was always up for a good debate. She loved to socialize and knew how to strike up a conversation with anyone and was truly interested in what you had to say and how you were.

Marcia was You can't cross a chasm in two small steps, you must take a big step when a big step is indicated. always a good example of taking care of yourself, and motivated others to do the same. She was always health conscious and made sure to eat right and exercise as often as possible. She believed that every girl needed a scale and a full-length mirror.

All those that loved Marcia remember her quick mind and splendid repartee. Her unforgettable laugh and smile were contagious. She will always be remembered as a vivacious, glamorous, and classy lady. She sparkled as she went, all the way till the end.

The impression that Marcia left on this world will last forever and she will be tremendously missed.

Celebration of life will be held in May 2024

What a lady! She was always done up to perfection. She met with us each Sunday in our home during COVID restrictions for a group discussion of our gospel study. How we enjoyed her quick wit and well informed mind. She loved to spark a lively discussion and found much joy in it. She was a person who was not afraid to speak her mind. She has often been on my mind since that time as we have all gone our separate ways. Much love to her family at this time as you adjust to life without her. May you all find comfort and peace each and every day as you move forward.
